Writing novels is the culmination of years of role-playing with others.
Dungeons & Dragons came first, with a dozen DM short stories and novelettes for the players to base their adventures on the details.
Tejj, the dwarven wagon drover from late 1990’s Everquest, where he met with Turakin, the elvish druid from Kelethin.
Alibin, the dwarvish celerity healer who carried battering rams in Dark Age of Camelot, fighting beside Turakin the Norseman huntress.
Tejj, the wookie doctor of Nashal on Triton in Star Wars Galaxies, along with Turakin, the wookie Commando.
Sophos, the orc warrior in World of Warcraft. Turakin the Tauren hunter tempted Donald to join her in WoW beta and beyond.
